As Sterling Jones, Staplcotn's vice president of cotton services points out, cooperatives definitely aren't in the business of "hitting home runs."

Instead, Staplcotn concentrates on steady, conservative marketing when it takes a producer's cotton.The company began its business in 1921 and manages an annual volume of between 3.6 million and 3.8 million bales.To put that number into perspective, Jones says, Staplcotn handles about 41 percent of all cotton sold in its Mid-South and Southeast territories.Because of the changing nature of the cotton market, Staplcotn now has about 40 percent of its business in exports and 50 percent in domestic sales.
"A farmer has a lot of things to worry about during a normal production year," says Jones.
